Prologue 



Last evening while visiting the library, I happened to walk 
through a row of books which looked very fascinating. I took one 
of the books off of the shelf and started to thumb my way through 
it. The first page began 

On a warm September morning in nineteen hundred and fifty- 
one, the first day of high school for our class began. We were 
all proud of the fact that we were finally freshmen. Most of us 
thought this day would never come when we could enter the school 
and gather together in small groups. Everything was so different 
that for a moment we were a little afraid of the new people. 

Having gathered in our home rooms we were instructed to take 
seats. Of course everyone sat next to their friend and were a lit- 
tle afraid of the new students, but in time we got to know our class- 
mates. 

I turned to the next few pages of the book and continued: 

The night had come when we dreaded the thought of going to 
school, for the seniors had something planned that hastened the 
heart beats of all. Freshman reception was here. We had heard 
about this night from all the students in school for a long time, 
but finally it was over and was not as bad as they had led us to 
believe. 

Then turning the next page I came across the many school 
basketball games that we had played. These were our most ex- 
citing moments every winter. Baseball was played at our school 
and every time spring came around we looked forward to some 
exciting baseball games. 

I turned to the next few pages and read about the school dances 
that were put on in the summertime. The school prom really ex- 
cited the girls, who were wondering if they would have a date for 
that night. 

There wasn't a day in high school which would not be remem- 
bered in the coming years. Turning to the last few pages of the 
book I saw our classmates in their senior year. They now were 
putting on the many activities which in previous years had been 
put on by the seniors.

Dedication 



This year the class of '55 dedicates the yearly "Tattler" to Mr. Mer- 
ritt who has been our friend and helper in our four years at Williams- 
burg High School. Mr. Merritt who is our superintendent has seen mostly 
all of us through four and even twelve years of school, but it was in high 
school where we really got to know him. Leaving school this year, we 
wish to dedicate our "Tattler" to him and also our thanks. 




LINDA SANDERSON 



The tragic death of Linda, our senior class presi- 
dent, has brought sadness into all our lives with the 
realization that we have lost a faithful friend. We feel 
her presence still; we see her smile; and we will 
cherish always the memory of her friendship. 




MALCOLM HEATH 



Within a short space of two days we were saddened 
a second time by the loss of another schoolmate. 
Malcolm's happy, kindly spirit, his untiring energy, 
and his love of fun are qualities which will stand out 
forever in our memory of him.

Juniors 



The Junior Class of '56 returned to the old routine of classes feeling supe- 
rior to the Freshmen and Sophomores because now we were able to look down 
on them as underclassmen. 

The boys won out in the class elections with Robert Healy as President, 
Robert Morton as Vice-President, James as Treasurer, Joan Braman as Sec- 
retary, and Ann Sullivan as Historian. 

The main topics of class meetings were the Junior Prom, followed close 
by the problem of filling the treasury. 

We are all looking forward to our Senior year and the good times that go 
with it. It seems like yesterday we were Freshmen but tomorrow we will be 
Seniors .

Sophomores 



As Sophomores, the class of '57, with thirty-two students started the year 
off with a very successful food sale. Because of our efficient committee we 
received one hundred -thirty dollars from this food sale. 

For class officers our class elected John Merritt; President, Samuel 
Bowker; vice-president, Juanita Terrill, secretary, Patricia Moynahan, treas- 
urer, and Betty Beals, historian. 

Our class was well represented in both the boys' and girls' sports. Many 
were also active in glee club, orchestra, and the Tattler staff. With our first 
two years of high school behind us, we are all looking forward to our last two 
years at Williamsburg High School.

Freshmen 



This year , starting out as Freshmen, we elected officers as follows: Presi- 
dent, Ronnie Packard; Vice-president, Alice Hathaway; Secretary, Betty Hig- 
gins; Treasurer, Charles Sears. 

As Freshmen we didn't do many things, but one we did was go to Freshmen 
Reception which was in our honor. We are looking forward to three more years 
at Williamsburg High School. 

In the following years we hope to put on some school projects which will help 
us to raise some money.

to happen" is the general thought.

As seen below, our girls' basket- 
ball team had an outstanding season, 
with 14 wins and 2 losses. This is the 
first year, since they resumed play 
in the Franklin league, that the girls 
have come out on top. For this out- 
standing work, the girl' s team has 
won a trophy for Williamsburg High 
School. 

It was greatly due to the speed and 
ability of our guards that this was 
such a successful year . The forwards, 



however, in their skill, chalked up a 
total of 626 points, to their opponents' 
354. 

We will lose, through graduation, 
three of our first team, although many 
ofthe underclassmen show promising 
ability and skill. 

We will be hoping for another suc- 
c e s s f ul season next year under the 
leadership and sportsmanship of our 
coach, Mrs. Kmit.

Williamsburg High School had a very successful "54-55" basketball sea- 
son with the "Dragons" winning 13 out of 21 games. The team won its first 
game of the season, and then lost 5 straight games to strong Hampshire 
League and independent teams. 

Williamsburg captured second place in the Franklin League this year with 
Joe Moynahan battling "Red" Porter of Northfield for top honors in scoring 
with Moynahan winning the Western Mass. scoring title with 590 points. Joe 
also set a new individual scoring record with 45 points against New Salem. 
Co-Capt. John Dymerski with 210 points for the season emerged as the 3rd 
highest scorer in the school's history, with only Moynahan and Leo Dymerski 
boasting higher total points. 

Two new team records were established during the season as the "Frosty 
Kids" came on strong as the season progressed. By scoring 87 points against 
Chicopee-Trade the team set a new single game high. The season's total of 
1237 points was also a new record. 

After a season climaxed by a double victory over arch-rival, Sanderson, 
the Burghers were invited to the Tri State Tournament at Turners Falls, 
where they defeated Hardwick in the first game, but lost to Troy N.H., the 
eventual winner. 

The squad will not lose a single member through graduation and is look- 
ing forward to a very successful season next year, in the new Anne T. Dunphy 
School.

Epilogue 



As we near the closing of the book we look over the last few pages 
very carefully. Our years at Burgy High have been very enlightening 
and a lot of fun. As Graduation approaches we are kind of sorry to be 
leaving Williamsburg for we know that we may never get to see the whole 
class together again. 

Once in a while we may bump into one of our classmates , but each is 
on his own path now and is going on in his chosen field. 

For the four years we have been in Williamsburg we can recall many 
wonderful friends and good times that we all have had. From our Fresh- 
man year right up to our Senior year we have had many experiences 
which will remain in our minds for many years to come. 

Our class consisting of nine girls and eleven boys is a small class, 
but it is in a class like this where you get to know everyone personally. 
This is the way one makes close friends, friends he will never forget. 
We did not get to go on a class trip, but we did have a banquet which 
brought to our minds we are leaving. 

In our four years we did not put on many activities or have many 
money raising projects. In our town we can't do very much anyway be- 
cause it's so small, but this is an advantage to both the school and the 
town people. 

Next year our town will have a new school which will do much for 
the boys and girls in school providing them with a gymnasium and as- 
sembly hall. This will be the first year in a very long time that our 
boys will have a hall in which they play their home games. 

Well we are coming to the last few days of school and are starting 
to get ready for graduation, the last day we shall see the whole class 
together. 

Good luck to next year's graduating class.
